Our Heavenly Father received a great man on July 26, 2012. We lost our mentor, our hero, our idol, and best friend. Tracy Martino was larger and louder than life. An adoring husband, loving father, and genuine friend to all, he truly left his mark in this world.

He was born in Price on April 1, 1957 to Jay and Donna Gentry Martino. On March 26, 1981, he married Lois Leifson in the Salt Lake City Temple. He owned a successful chemical business Golden West Ind. He always had a dream of owning horses. Eight years after buying his saddle, he moved to Heber and his dream became a reality.

He was his wife's and children's most enthusiastic cheerleader.  Always present and mentoring every soccer game, rodeo, hunt, and trips to Africa. He was one of the most generous and honest men you would ever have the pleasure of knowing. He was the man with the plan. Always had the answer you needed. He'll always be the man. Tracy was a husband, dad, son, uncle, brother, and adopted grandpa.

He is survived by his loving companion, Lois, and their children Christopher, Gentry, (Jen), Colton and his African princess Lillian. Also, Father Jay Martino (Barbara), mother-in-law, Marrion Leifson, brother, Lane (Kim) and sister Lyn and several nieces and nephews whom he adored.  Preceded in death by his mother (Donna) and father in law Reed Leifson. 

You touched so many lives.  Ride hard you big rock star. You've earned your way into heaven our friend. Keep some horses saddled and legged up for us when our time comes.
